STACKED IN: August

So, I decided to put a little twist on Tynga’s Reviews weekly Stacking The Shelves feature. Instead of weekly, I’ll be doing a monthly book haul post titled Stacked In. My book shopping is so incredibly mercurial (I can buy 20 books in 1 week, and none in the next) that this seems to be the best of resolutions. So, without much further ado, here are the books I bought in August! πŸ™‚

STACKING THE SHELVES (#11): April 14 – 20

ALL the preorders came in during the week (well, not all, but the majority of my purchases were preorders – as in 3 in 5), so this will turn out to be an amazing Easter Weekend for me! Coming home to books you’ve been super excited about is probably the best reward for a stressful week at uni, right? I intend to roll around in bed with my books, food (aka tons of chocolate and the likes) and lots of sleep all day today, so I’m keeping this post short and sweet! Here’s my Stacking of the Shelves for this week! Yay! Happy reading to everyone! πŸ™‚

STACKING THE SHELVES (#10): April 1 – 13

I’m back with the amazing Tynga’s Reviews feature of the Stacking of the Shelves! Yay!

I didn’t think uni would completely boycott my will for free time once the summer semester started, but looks like there isn’t going to be much of anything but class work in my near future until the end of probably July. So while I got overly overwhelmed the past couple of weeks, I’ve somehow gotten my schedule under control and have finally been able to plan some blog business. I am back with my regular schedule from now on! Another yay! I am so behind on my personal reading, it’s frustrating, so I haven’t really felt like picking up that many new books (evidently eBooks are a whole different thing, as you can see, but that loney, lonely single paperback just breaks my heart). I can’t really pick up a lot of real copies while classes are ongoing because I’m at my apartment during the week and then heading to my parents’ house over the weekends, and I am a tiny person, so no heavy lifting for me. Thank God for eReaders! I also finally managed to try out my local library’s eBook rental, so let’s see how Ward’s series kicks off!

Anyway, enough with the rambling, here are my newest bookish acquisitions! (I can’t wait to get to read them over Easter Weekend!)

STACKING THE SHELVES (#9): March 23 – 30

Meh, it’s been a slow week, so it’s going to be a mini version of Stacking of the Shelves this week! Considering the end of the month is upon us and the fact that I spent a good fortune on Marvel Blu Rays as well, it looks like my beloved books took a backseat. Ugh. I hate myself sometimes. Blame Tom Hiddleston for his Lokiness. Anyway, here are my meager pickings! πŸ˜€

STACKING THE SHELVES (#8): March 10 – 22

Sooo, there wasn’t a Stacking of the Shelves post last week. Not because I didn’t have the time to write an entry, but something far more shameful: I didn’t buy any books. Not a single one. No hardcover, no paperback, no ebook. That hasn’t happened in over three years. Three. Years. I don’t know what happened, but there was either no time or (gasp!) no motivation to order some, so I just rode that little book depression out like a pro and here I am again, all giddy over my new purchases. I pretty much love all of them and am super excited to start reading (I may have already finishedΒ See Me, Ringer and Can You Keep A Secret? within a day, oops)! Thank God that little bout of depression didn’t last too long. Phew.

STACKING THE SHELVES (#7): March 3 – 9

Dammit, I’m late with my Stacking of the Shelves for this week, but the flu and studying kept me away from any fun times on the net for the past couple of days! Add beautiful weather to that equation, and I was bound to lose track of pretty much everything in my life. Anyway, the past week was a lot of fun, I got a couple of paperback editions for books I already own as ebooks (and White Hot Kiss mysteriously appeared in my mailbox even though I didn’t order it), and then there was that awesome surprise containing Maybe Someday andΒ Finding Cinderella that came two weeks early! Thank ya, bookstore! I owe you! Definitely hasn’t been the busiest book-buying-week I’ve ever had, but I’m getting back on track, I think! I hope you had a great week, the weather has been so incredible and I hope you guys had the opportunity to spend some much needed reading in the sun! πŸ™‚

STACKING THE SHELVES (#6): February 23 – March 2

Man, I need to get out of the house and to a bookstore more often, my book-buying-game has been so down, it’s almost embarassing. Well, here’s my little Stacking of the Shelves for this week, albeit a day late! I think the biggest surprise of my week was the fact that C.J. Duggan‘s Boys of Summer series has become my favourite new adult romance series in probably ever, so much so that I literally couldn’t concentrate on anything else until I had the available books all finished. Sigh. This barely happens. Anyway, here goes! πŸ™‚
